(E) They think we speak Serbo-Croatian - Correction needed

 

Something to correct

Dear Fellow Croatians:

I work in the film business and recently was doing research on a very
popular internet website IMDb, Internet Movie Database. To my horror, all
Croatian language films were listed as Serbo-Croatian. IMDb is a very
widely used research tool for professionals and film buffs alike, the world
over. Everyone uses it.

Check it out:
http://us.imdb.com/List?language=Serbo-Croatian&&tv=on&&heading=10;Serbo-Croatian&&nav=/Sections/Languages/Serbo-Croatian/include-titles  

write to:

simeon@imdb.com
 

Obviously, they're not so much at fault as the website they use that
disseminates the erroneous information, Rosetta Project. Please help me in convincing both
websites that they need to make corrections.

www.Rosettaproject.org     

do a search for Croatian and it brings you to the serbo-croatian page

For other questions, comments, concerns or input, we encourage you to
contact Jim Mason, the Director of the Rosetta Project.


Please help me in convincing both websites that they need to
make corrections. IMDb have not responded to my emails since I sent them
the CIA website information. This was almost a month ago. Please be
polite when responding, as I know you will be. We need to show we are
civilized people and would just prefer that they correct their mistake. 
Unless we tell them, no one else will stand up and tell them for us.

Best,
Ziggy Mrkich
